    Very nice shots.

    For the last 3, how are you determining what aperture you need? You go from F14 to F20 but lighting conditions are similar for all three.

    Visual Reality Very nice shots.

    it was more a case of trial and error, took a few shots from each location to try and determine which settings were best, the main reason for the f20 shot was to give a ger shutter speed and strangely enough that shot looked better then the f16 shot from the same spot...

    heres another one i like

    great shots ! they look a little too pastelly (??) for my liking as HDR's. will be interested to hear what Denis or Phil have to say given they are the experts. wpuldnt mind seeign the results of a single exposure to see the differences.

    i love the composition of the set though. very nicely done.

    The HDR shots aren't that great. What HDR conversion software do you use? Desaturate them alot. They both look like you put the saturation slider on +100 in Photoshop. I think that might be all you'd need to do for those images.

    I personally like the 2nd, 3rd, and the last one you posted best. The cross is probably your strongest image with the cross being placed in the top third of the frame and having the image be almost perfectly symmetrical. You might also want to see what White Balance you had set. Were those lights really orange or were they a type of fluorescent light?

    Your second HDR image is really good as well with the symmetry and with the path leading the viewers eye into the photograph and up towards the cross

    Cool shots Ssil, I'm about to get mine out of the camera but I had to peek here first. Delayed by lawnmowing duties this morning.

    A really enjoyable joint shoot. Some advantages of working jointly were another photographer to generate extra ideas, a different approach, reduced risk of mugging by drunken party goers when there's two of you etc. I had a blast, learnt some stuff and got some good shots (I hope).

    Who, yes the light was really that strange orange colour. I reckon it's captured realistically what the eye saw. It's our local sandstone and lit by incandescent lights.

    Crickey I love those two Ssil. That shot of the war memorial with the cathedral in the background including the jet contrail is really special.

    Here's two of mine. The two easy ones to process since they were jpeg's. I like the cathedral with the lawn and wedding party. The other shot with the car lights and number plate is more here for novelty.
